Peachy Cowl Free Crochet Pattern
The Peachy Cowl crochet pattern is a shawl/cowl hybrid. If you love the look of shawls but have a hard time styling them this cowl is perfect for you. The pattern uses simple stitches and I’ve included a video tutorial so even even if you are fairly new to crochet you should be able to make it.
For this pattern I used 2 skeins of Uptown Worsted Hues in the colorway Painted Desert from Universal Yarn. I’ve used Uptown before I love that this acrylic is anti-pilling. It’s super soft and sure to hold up over time.
the Hues colorways are new. They all looked so beautiful I knew I had to try them. If solid colorways are more your thing Uptown Worsted is the perfect substitute.

Sample shown in Painted Desert
Approximately 360 yards
I/5.5 mm hook (or hook to obtain gauge)
Ch = chain
St = stitch
Sc = single crochet
Dc = double Crochet
This cowl is worked in one flat piece that is seamed.
Gauge is not critical for this project but the cowl should measure about 25“ across after row 29. You can adjust this by following the instructions in the pattern if needed.
Row 1: 3 dc in the 4th chain from hook (skipped sts count as a dc), turn. 4 dc
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), dc in the 1st st, dc, skip 1, 6 dc in the last, turn. 9 dc
Row 3: Ch 4 (counts as a dc), 5 dc in the 1st st, skip 2, dc, skip 2, 5 dc, skip 1, dc in the last, turn. 13 dc
Row 4: Ch 3, 2 dc in the 1st st, skip 2, dc, skip 2, 5 dc, skip 2, dc, skip 2, 6 dc in the last, turn. 16 dc
Row 5: Ch 4, 5 dc in the 1st st, skip 2, dc, *skip 2, 5 dc, skip 2, dc; repeat from * across, turn. 19 dc
Row 6: Ch 3, 2 dc in the 1st st, skip 2, dc, *skip 2, 5 dc, skip 2, dc; repeat from * until 3 remain, 6 dc in the last, turn. 22 dc
Rows 7-28: Repeat rows 5 and 6. 88 dc
Row 29: Repeat row 5. 91 dc
The cowl should measure 25“ across. If it’s too large or too small you can subtract or add rows in multiples of 2. You need to end on a repeat of row 5.
Row 30: Ch 3, 2 dc in the 1st st, skip 2, dc, *skip 2, 5 dc, skip 2, dc; repeat from * until 3 remain, 3 dc in the last, turn.
Row 31: Ch 3, *skip 2, 5 dc, skip 2, dc; repeat from * across, turn.
Rows 32-45: Repeat rows 30 and 31
Fold the cowl in half lengthwise and sew the ends of rows 30-45 together.
